My Mother's Signature Recipe for Tarako Carrots

This is the best dish for eating a lot of carrots. Please try it with tarako (salt-cured cod roe) or mentaiko (salt-cured spicy cod roe).

Ingredients: about 4 servings

1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
about 1 tablespoon
Red chili pepper
To taste
Vegetable oil
A small amount


1. Finely julienne the carrots.
2. Take the tarako out of the membrane, add the sake, soy sauce and chili pepper and combine.
3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat and stir fry the carrot.
4. When it's wilted, add the mixed tarako and stir fry well. When the flavors are evenly distributed, it's done. Be careful to turn down the heat to low once you add the tarako to prevent scorching.
